BIG and Lindner GFT GmbH as hosts invited to practice-related speeches and a guided tour including a meal in our brewery in Mariakirchen. In the stylish ambience of the conference rooms at Schloss Mariakirchen, the event started on time with introductory words of Alfred Bircks, Chairman of BIG, and the Managing Director of Lindner GFT GmbH, Josef Bielmeier.

The presentation about “fire protection in interior fit-out” from Prof. Dipl.-Ing. Klaus Lang, Head of Research & Development, attracted great interest. Prof. Lang answered the current questions of the interested participants, amongst other things about the legal requirements concerning the fire protection in “necessary corridors”. He also explained the fire-resistance classes of plasterboard partitions according to DIN 4102/4 and presented the regulations about the fire-protective glazing in the partitions of “necessary corridors”.

Josef Bielmeier reported about “dry screeds in the world of subfloors”. He did not only clarify the necessary requirements for the use of dry screeds, but also emphasized the advantages for the specialized entrepreneurs and their consequential competence compared to planners and builders. Subsequently, the NORIT-products of Lindner GFT GmbH were presented in more detail.

After a short break, Dunja Morge (BIG) informed about the development and aims of the association. Especially the topic “apprenticeship in the dry construction industry” was not only welcomed by the participating students of the “Staatliche und kommunale berufliche Schulen Vilshofen an der Donau” (state and municipal vocational schools Vilshofen an der Donau).

As the last speaker, Ulrich Stahl, chairman of “Bundesverband Flächenheizungen und Flächenkühlungen e.V.” (Federal association for surface heating and cooling), questioned whether new business segments for the extension and construction industry, away from the heating construction industry, could develop out of it. This issue belonged to the topic “heating and cooling across extensive systems engineering”. In his opinion, the future trends are obviously located in nearly zero energy buildings and also in system providers, which enable planning, sales and installation being “from one source”.

After the official part of the BIG Impulse network meeting, the event ended, upon the invitation of Lindner GFT GmbH, with a guided tour through the brewery and a following snack at Schlossbräu Mariakirchen.

Lindner Group was responsible for dry construction works as well as for hollow floors. A gold certification according to DGNB was aimed for and finally fulfilled thanks to a sustainable building concept. As a founding member of DGNB, Lindner Group has gained several years of experience in sustainable construction.

The extensive dry construction works of this project focused in the corridor and office areas, conference and meeting rooms as well as the cafeteria. Approximately 8,500 sqm plasterboard walls and 5,600 sqm plasterboard ceilings with and without perforation have been used. In addition, there were various special works as for example the set-up of handrails, board counter and plasterboard chilled ceilings.

Furthermore, about 9,400 sqm of CAVOPEX hollow floor systems were installed. Thanks to numerous covering options, the system could meet the different requirements in the building.

Before the renovation works started, a comprehensive situation analysis was carried out by the project management to get a picture of the buildings characteristics. As a part of this, the substructures for the fire protection ceilings and other constructive challenges have been solved in advance. The Media Academy features numerous hallway combinations and connections that had to be considered in the ceiling construction: hallway enlargements, frieze connections and central suspensions saw use in the course of this project.

The key decision factors in favour of the Lindner Fire Protection ceiling system type LMD F30 TIPmotion® had been the quick, easy and toolless access to the ceiling void. Some hallways run at a slight incline, which required a constructive ceiling solution that ensures flawless function of the tip mechanism for every single ceiling element. An additional safety catch prevents the elements from sliding down the incline.

This Lindner Fire Protection Ceiling System does not only offer protection with a resistance class of F30 acc. to DIN 4102-2, it also improves the Media Academy´s acoustics through perforations. The hallwas are illuminated by its integrated luminaires type T38/20 for metal fire protection ceilings. A total of 65 of these specular louvre luminaires have been fitted with the ceilings. By choosing integrated lighting solutions by Lindner, it can be ensured that there are no differences in colour between the luminaire and the ceiling element, while typical interface-related problems such as tolerances or damages in assembly are avoided all together.

news-4364 Wed, 23 Nov 2016 14:37:00 +0100 High climate comfort in Düsseldorf’s new quarter Belsenpark https://legacy.lindner-group.com/en_GB/news/article/high-climate-comfort-in-duesseldorfs-new-quarter-belsenpark-4364/ A new quarter for living and working was created in the popular district Düsseldorf-Oberkassel. The Building MK 2.1/3, or „Belmundo“, is a part of this new quarter. It has been fitted with Lindner Heating and Cooling Ceilings, Wooden Doors and Hollow floors. The parks and green areas perfectly integrate the modern quarter into this district of Düsseldorf. Thus, 70 % of the office building MK2.1 / MK3 – officially named “Belmundo” – have already been rented at the start of construction.

Apart from Lindner wooden doors and hollow floor systems, various Plafotherm® heated/chilled ceilings have been installed in the building planned by the architects SOP. The dry lining works were also carried out. The office building certified by the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB) has a rental area of approx. 10,000 sqm.

The sustainable concept comprises Plafotherm® heated/chilled ceilings which provide for high climate comfort, both in the representative entrance area and the bright office areas. For the extensive public areas, the client decided on the heated/chilled plasterboard ceiling Plafotherm® GK VarioFlex with efficient cooling. Instead of this, metal heated/chilled ceilings were chosen for the office areas. The flexible layouts allow for a large number of possible floor plans – thus, individual offices and open plan offices are included in the office area. Even after completion, the installed Plafotherm® B heated/ chilled post cap ceilings leave enough freedom to subsequently install a partition and to create new office solutions. Plafotherm® DS heated/chilled canopy ceilings were also used in the open office areas and provide for an ideal working atmosphere. Like this, the temperature control and illumination is exactly above the individual workstations and conference tables.

news-4336 Wed, 02 Nov 2016 10:04:00 +0100 Training as quality factor: product workshops for international employees https://legacy.lindner-group.com/en_GB/news/article/training-as-quality-factor-product-workshops-for-international-employees-4336/ Continuous education is highly regarded at Lindner. Throughout the year there are presentations, trainings and workshops – from language courses to IT trainings – most of which are prepared and held in-house by our employees for their colleagues. Courses aiming at the transfer of first-hand know-how on products and construction site management represent the largest module in the education catalogue.

Our annual company party in Arnstorf is the perfect opportunity to offer theoretical and practical training for visitors from our international subsidiaries: products are being explained in detail, their attributes demonstrated at close range. The highlight of a workshop very often is a complete hands-on installation of a certain system. For employees working in sales, CAD or internal services, this practical experience enhances their understanding of the products, their applications and how they differ from other solutions.

The Product Management team for Ceiling Systems, for instance, held a workshop for commercial clerks from France, presenting the heated and chilled metal and plasterboard ceilings Plafotherm® B 100 and Plafotherm® GK HEKDA, respectively. In the process they did not only install a ceiling system but also gained insight into the hydraulic connection and the structure of regulation units, and even into soldering and pressing. Using essential tools, like a level, segmented bender and tube cutter, was part of the training, too.

At a different event, employees from Lindner USA had the opportunity to become more familiar with the extensive range of ceiling systems, including Post Cap, Hook-on and Expanded Metal. Particular attention was paid to the introduction and installation practice of the new Baffle ceiling, LMD-L 608.

news-4323 Thu, 20 Oct 2016 15:25:00 +0200 Novelty DryMode: Dry Laying Method for Floor Tiles on Lindner Hollow and Raised Floor Systems https://legacy.lindner-group.com/en_GB/news/article/novelty-drymode-dry-laying-method-for-floor-tiles-on-lindner-hollow-and-raised-floor-systems-4323/ Lindner Group offers a revolutionary laying technique for ceramic surfaces that goes by the name DryMode. It enables 50 % faster and dust-free laying of tiles – without the use of primers or adhesives. The preparations for this method begin in the factory, where a layer of cork is applied to stone or ceramic tiles of all sizes, creating a precisely processed compound dry tile. When brought to the construction site, these tiles can be laid at once without any further preparations on a smooth surface, ideally FLOOR and more® hollow floors.

Only 12 to 24 hours after tiling and jointing, the surface is ready to carry loads. A circumferential edge on every tile makes for a predefined alignment of the panels to a joint width of 3 mm. Furthermore, the cork acts as an acoustically effective decoupling from the substructure.

Be it for moving, change of tenants or other changes in the utilization of a space, the tiles can be removed quickly, without residue and without any damage to the building structure. In case a single tile is damaged, it can also be exchanged within mere minutes with no additional drying period: you simply uncover the tile, remove it, insert a new piece and refill in the joints.

DryMode is especially attractive for large, continuous areas, which are commonly found in office buildings, museums, educational establishments, atria and shopping centres. Here, the installation efficiency is absolutely unrivalled.

The DryMode laying method has already been used successfully in several projects. One of them was the multi-purpose complex Arabeska in Munich, where over 20,000 sqm of Lindner Hollow and Raised Floors have been installed in high-quality rental areas that house companies such as the Bosch branch BSH Household Appliances and the insurance group Swiss Re.

In one of the building parts, the NORTEC Raised Floors have been used as a substructure for the large-format tiles (1.2 m x 1.2 m) that were laid using the DryMode method. The outcome speaks for itself: extremely short installation without waiting time and a perfect result.
